The Bartholomews | Day in the Life

I don’t know how I can really describe how honored I am to photograph this family again. From the engagement session up to the birth of their second son, I just love this family to pieces. I arrived one Saturday to the welcome committee of Boston Terriers and Mason, the first born, ready for me to play toys with him. Max, Mason’s new little brother, is a week younger than my second daughter we just celebrated coming into our lives. I don’t just know what it’s like to juggle an active first born, dogs, work, a newborn and more… I’m living it too. I completely empathize that you are trying to take in every moment with the new one like you did the first without neglecting the first… it seems impossible but Lindsay and JP are so loving and have so much to give their boys. Mason is a loving and helpful brother and Max is a lucky guy to have a big brother like him watching out for him when he gets older.

Here is their Saturday morning. Complete with pajamas, lounging around, playing with dad, chilling with mom, and a little coffee to keep it going.

The Bartholomews | Day in the Life

I have never really taken baby photos, especially newborns. It’s not that I don’t like them, I love babies, but I just hadn’t found a way to do it that was “me”.
So, when my couples have asked about newborn and baby photos, I have always recommended those who I felt are the best in the field.


Well, when Lindsay and JP asked me about baby photos, I did the same thing. Lindsay later came back to me and said, “I think their work is cute, but it’s not what we want.”
So after a few months of thinking it over and inspired by my friend, Daniel Shaw, I shared my idea with Lindsay.
Her eyes lit up and she enthusiastically said, “That’s it! That’s what we want!”


So, after very much thought, I introduce to you the “Day in the Life” session.
Documenting a day in the life of your family, it takes my strength and passion of documentary photography into your home for honest memories of your closest relationships.
This isn’t cute hats and props. There is certainly nothing wrong with hats and props, this just isn’t that. It’s real life.
With a Day in the Life session, nothing in your day has to change, just live it.

I spent the day with The Bartholomew’s as their world revolved around their newest addition, Baby Mason.
Here is their life…


JP, Lindsay, Baby Mason & Bosco – 20 July 2011


Breakfast time for everyone…


Figuring out why a baby is crying is one of the greatest challenges for a new mom.. and dog…

While this wall-art usually mesmerizes Mason, the swing did the trick this time…

My favorite, hands down. Makes me teary-eyed…

JP comes home to a sleepy baby…

Play time with Daddy! If you look close enough, Mason is flippin’ me the bird…
